For those mums who asked me for the cinnamon dough recipe at the Coolbellup Library Storytime on Wednesday, here it is:
1 cup of cinnamon
2 cups of boiling water
1 1/2 cups of plain flour

Combine boiling water and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl. The cinnamon will become a stretchy paste.

Add plain flour half a cup at a time. By the end of adding the flour, you will need to place on a lightly floured board and give the dough a good knead to get a nice and consistent dough.

Roll out dough. Cut out shapes free hand or use cookie cutters.

For an extra touch, you can use some glitter glue to decorate. Don’t forget to add a hole where you’d like to tie some ribbon to hang on your Christmas tree or make a mobile.

Turn the shapes over when you can see them drying out so they dry flat and don’t turn up at the edges. They will take a couple of days to air dry completely.

Merry Christmas!
